    Thanks for the trip report. Looks like I'll be adding Ascutney to my hit list. So, no problems with the sheriffs, huh? Good to know.

    Ascutney is steep, and its ungroomed trails cover a minefield of rebar, rock slab, and iron piping just below the surface. Not easy on the up or down.
    Have other areas done a better job of smoothing the "grundlefloss"?

    Great post. Great to see Ascutney and the Woodstock area!

    Abubob- I'm not sure if other closed areas are any less flossy. They definitely get more anti-grundle as time passes and the brush gets thicker. You can check out NELSAP: http://www.nelsap.org/, for a pretty comprehensive list of closed ski areas in the area.
